Belly Dance Musician Tribute 2/21/12: Dr. Samy Farag (Hollywood, CA) original Tweet 10/7/11
THE ROCK – DWAYNE JOHNSON!
What on earth does Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock) have to do with Dr. Samy Farag? Well, the Rock was in the movie The Scorpion King and music by Dr. Samy Farag “Jewel of the Desert” was featured in the movie The Scorpion King. Got it? Good.
You know how some musicians have so many albums are CDs out that some are hit and miss? For example, The Jackson 5 are one of my favorite groups from back in the day, so when they splintered out and did individual albums, so were good, some were not so hot. I love mostly all of their early albums; but some of the later ones after Michael left are just blah.
This is not the case with Dr. Samy Farag. Every Belly Dance CD or Cassette that I have from him is pure GOLD!
They are ALL GOOD. You can’t go wrong with dancing to music by Dr. Samy Farag! So just buy them all!!!
You don’t have to worry about any bad apples in his basket of dance music, they are all great:
- The Jewel of the Desert
- Midnight Magic
- Arabian Melodies
- The Beat of the Night
- Rakasni Ya Habibi

I will be posting some of my original Dancer Tributes in WordPress, only the early ones that were in Twitter only, not WordPress. Back when I first starting posting the dancer tributes on Twitter I only had 2 subscribers. Now that I have more, I realized that a lot of people missed my early dancer tributes. But as I am reposting those, I will also keep adding new content for topics like Dance Choreography, new Dancer tributes, etc.
